Smoking and Mental Health: Understanding the IMPACT (ASH
Free, two-hour training around the links between smoking and
mental health is now available to third-sector organisations. To
help address the inequalities linked to higher smoking rates
amongst people experiencing poor mental health, ASH Scotland is
offering a newly-developed training course called "Smoking and
Mental Health: Understanding the IMPACT". The aim is to equip
workers who support people with lived experience of mental health
problems with the knowledge, skills and confidence to initiate a
conversation on smoking, and to discuss options for supporting
people who are ready to quit. It is based on a Guidance pack, developed by ASH Scotland, which
offers practical solutions to this complex issue.
The training is free, primarily designed for staff working
within third-sector organisations, and comprises a one-hour online
session (completed in advance) and a two-hour face-to-face
